It is very clear at this stage that in a post General Election situation that Fianna Fail will be unlikely to have the necessary Numbers even with Labour to form a government.
In any event FF would hardly be credible given their part in ruining the country as opposed to running it.
Labour have not indicated and realistic grasp of the necessary measures required to save the country. They should be quite at home with the march to a larger State Sector with the march to nationalisation of the Financial Sector.
Sinn Fein are motivated by a high sense of duty to their country and given that there hardly a party in the country without that was not hatched from armed struggle are they now ready to take their place in government to serve their Country.
A Sinn Fein FF government is not an option due to the perception by SF that FF are too close to Vested interests in the construction and banking sectors.
